24-year-old Äyanna is a newcomer with a big smile, big voice and even bigger dreams. This is evident in the way the singer lives her life, both as vibrantly and fearlessly as the songs she writes and performs.
Now, with a few major songwriting placements under her belt, Äyanna is continuing to focus on introducing herself to a wider audience as a singer and performer. Äyanna showcased both her songwriting and singing prowess with SPINALL and DJ Snake on “Power (Remember Who You Are), which is created for the Flipper's Skate Heist Short Film. The empowering and infectious dance track, which interpolates the memorable keys from Nina Simone’s “Sinnerman,” features Summer Walker.
In 2023, Äyanna signed to LVRN and joined the ranks of celebrated artists such as 6LACK, Summer Walker, DVSN, Davido, Spinall, Baby Tate and more. On September 13, 2023, she released her striking debut EP In A Perfect World - a striking mosaic of pop fused with R&B, soul and beyond. The 5-track offering housed a collection of breathtaking tracks accompanied with superb cinematography and choreography; capturing an enchanting tale of love that exists outside of the confines of a traditional fairytale.
